Hey guys I have a Astra gtc 2013 1.7 diesel .

Looking to change my rear brakes and got a few questions. Does anyone know the:

1) Torque specs: Brake caliper bolts
2) Torque specs: Caliper Bracket bolts
3) Torque specs: Wheel bolts
3) Winding back rear calipers : Clockwise or anti clockwise?

Any other tips that you think are important feel free to chip in. Thanks again

For anyone else who see this. The wind back is clockwise. I do bracket bolts to 100nm and one good grunt of a pull and the caliper bolts to about hand tight. Bought 30nm u would say. All seems good and ready

1) Torque specs: Brake caliper bolts 28 N·m (21 lb ft). 
2) Torque specs: Brake hose-to-calliper bolt = 40 N·m (30 lb ft). 
3) Torque specs: Caliper Bracket bolts = First pass to 100 N·m (74 lb ft) second pass to an additional 60 - 75 degrees. 
4) Torque specs: Wheel bolts = 140 N·m (103 lb ft).
5) Winding back rear calipers  = Clockwise

I know it's a little late but official Torque settings.
